Frequently Asked Questions
How do credit cards work?
Credit cards provide a short-term loan from a credit card issuer. You pay back the money you borrowed, plus interest based on your Annual Percentage Rate (APR), over a period of time. Each credit card has a credit limit and you can spend up to that limit. You’ll be expected to pay a minimum balance each month, which is usually just the interest plus a very small percentage of your total balance. If you pay your statement balance in full each month, you’ll help improve your credit score and you can avoid paying interest. Depending on the card, you may also be charged annual maintenance fees, balance transfer fees (for transferring your balance from another credit card), cash advance fees or late payment fees, all of which are added to your balance.
How to get a credit card
Applying for a credit card is relatively easy. You’ll provide basic information (which can vary slightly depending on the card) like your social security number, driver license number, income, address, phone number and more. This information is used to check your credit score, credit history, debt ratio and payment history. If you’re approved, you’ll be granted a card with an APR and credit limit that reflects your credit history. There are multiple credit card options available to select from. Make sure you only apply for credit cards that work for you before you try to open an account.
How to apply
Mission Fed makes it easy to apply for credit union credit cards. Whether you want to apply for your credit union credit cards online, make an appointment and apply in person at one of our branch locations, or apply over the phone we want you to be able to apply in the way that makes sense for your needs. Just gather the information listed above and apply for your card in whichever way is most convenient for you.
Can you get cash back from a credit card?
You certainly can! Many cards offer cash back rewards, which help you earn cash on the everyday purchases you make. Then, you can redeem your points for cash back or other reward options easily and securely online and via Mission Fed’s Mobile Banking app.
How to calculate credit card interest
There are three basic steps when it comes to calculating the interest.
- Look at your APR and convert it to a daily rate by dividing by 365, which will give you the daily periodic interest rate.
- Figure out your average daily balance by adding up the daily balance for each day in the billing period, then dividing by the number of days in the billing period.
- If you need to determine other credit calculations, like how long it’ll take you to pay off your credit card and more, try one of Mission Fed’s Credit Union Credit Card Calculators.
